Suggest treatment for wheezing and cough

Hi I have had a chesty cough for 5 days now, coughing up green phlegm, it is however much looser, I was weezy but last night and today the weezing has eased. However I seem to be very hoarse and losing my voice, my throat was sore 4 days ago and had a lot of nasal congestion. This has all gone, but losing my voice. Have you any advice as I am a teacher and rather need to use my voice,

Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you are mostly having post infectious bronchitis.
It is common after viral upper respiratory tract infection (URTI).
You will improve with with following steps.
1. Avoid oily and spicy food. Avoid junk food.
2. Do warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
3. Combination of antihistamine and anti inflammatory drugs is also beneficial.
4. Inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) are also needed for wheezing.
Don't worry, you will be alright. Consult your doctor and discuss all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
